Causes, Symptoms and Treatment
Chin dimpling is sometimes referred to as 'golf ball chin' or 'orange peel skin'. Overactivity or chronic spasm of the chin muscles (mentalis) can lead to excessive prominence of the chin and an unattractive dimpling/pebbling effect on the skin surface.
Botulinum Toxin (sometimes known as Botox®) can be carefully injected into the mentalis muscle. The muscle relaxes and the surface area looks smooth, reducing the prominence of the chin dimpling while maintaining natural movement.
For patients who have especially deep chin dimpling, dermal fillers can be used as an adjunct to anti wrinkle injections to deliver the best results. In most instances the frequency of the injections can be reduced over time while retaining the quality of the results.
